Butterflies

Chhavi’s favorites past time in evening is to go to the park. Once inside swings are her preferred destination. While we were walking in I noticed a beautiful butterfly on the hedge. Once I safely deposited her on the swing and pushed her high, I asked her if I could go (my house is 10 steps away) and bring out the camera. Her highness going high on the swing somehow agreed.

It was only after looking at the pictures on my laptop I realized there were two butterflies. Chhavi clicked a few pictures with my cell phone. As soon as I am reasonably confident that she will not drop a camera, I am buying her one. And what a bliss it is to have a holiday.

Perfect looking shot. Usually, photographing butterflies takes a long time as they keep hoping from 1 place to another. You need lot of patience to shoot. Glad you got this picture perfect shot.

Rajesh the little bit of bird photography I have done, I know how difficult it is. One of the times when I just got lucky.
